1 Review
The isolated Newfoundland outport where Don and Jan Sawyer land their first teaching jobs is a village strapped by poverty and rocked by social change. The local high school is, in a word, terrible. Hoberly Cove is a place and a people Don Sawyer knows nothing about... but he soon learns. And in the process he learns a lot about teaching. This is a superbly written, true and moving story, full of warmth and respect, which most educators and would-be teachers will find completely absorbing. It will encourage you, and at times astound you. Mike Rose, professor at UCLAs graduate school of education (and author of Lives on the Boundary and Possible Lives) says: "I am so glad this classic book is back in print; Ive been recommending it for years." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
